v8 Rx7 at Summit Main - Hyperfest

I'm always looking for feedback from those with more experience than myself. Here is a video I shot of my 2nd session on Sunday. This is my first event of the year after I've spent a lot of time installing powerflex bushings and new pillowballs.

Next on the list is to sort the brakes, which were not really confidence inspiring over the weekend. I'm using the stock calipers with xp10(front) and xp8(rear) with 2-piece racing brake rotors in the front. The front rotors are done and I'm considering all my options at the moment. However, budget is tight due to our first little one on the way.

Anyway, enjoy the video and feel free to provide some constructive criticism.

I posted my review in the no rotors thread lol.

XP10/8 is pretty weak, I'd upgrade to at least XP12/10... you'll probably want front brake ducts too.

On my FC I run Hawk DTC60/HT10s with front ducts and Ti brake pad shims and they worked pretty flawlessly on my 1 track day on the setup lol
